Based on the pearly Queens of London -

Mermay 25 - Crustacean

Ok, so this is my cheat day... The prompt was 'Crustacean' and I'm just a little mermaided out after 24 of them so I went for everyone's favourite crustacean - Sebastian from 'The Little Mermaid'.

Mermay 20 - Siren

I decided to do a different take when it came to this prompt! It's great to have this list to spark ideas.

Mermay 19 - Lani

Today's prompt was 'Zombie'... but I hate zombies soooo here's Trigger and Lani, an ode to Tom Bancroft who created them and the Mermay challenge.

Mermay 16 - Old

Phew... We're over half way there guys! Todays is a slightly quicker one. I have to admit I'm getting a bit of mermaid fatigue... This is by farrr the furthest i've ever got through an art challenge though so I've gotta keep going!

Mermay 14 - Reverse

Today I discovered that it is nigh impossible to create an appealing reverse mermaid....

Mermay 13 - Maid

Mermay 13, "Maid". This is the first time I've ever revisited old artwork, this mermay is based on a mermaid I did last year. I might do more of these! It's really exciting to see some improvement!

Mermay 09 - Deep Ocean

I tried something a bit different with this one, I'm pretty happy with how it turned out. :)

Mermay 08 - Old Hollywood

"Hollywood, 1939. Amid the glitz and the glitter of a bustling, young movie town at the height of its golden age, The Hollywood Tower Hotel was a star in its own right..."

... Because when I see the theme 'Old Hollywood' I can't help but think of the Hollywood Tower Hotel! Flapper meets bellhop in this tribute to my favourite ride. She'd love to be flappin' her fins in the Tip Top Club but this mermaid swims directly into... The Twilight Zone.

Mermay 07 - Kelp

"Kelp", this lady has a strong hair game!

Mermay 06 - Non- Traditional

Just a quickie today! 'Non- Traditional'. I went for a kind of centauresque mermaid, based on the (adorable) axolotl.

MerMay 03 - Wicked

I had to decide whether to go for 'wicked' as in 'evil' or as in the broadway show! I went for the evil option, which is out of my cute, colourful and friendly comfort zone! This is Joan, proving at not all mermaids have to be beautiful sirens.
